Carol;

Way to go, Brian! I should have stopped by more often, because if I'd have known I'd have asked you to show Richard the Cokeburg photos and story I'd written. I bet he's never been there.

As they say in the beginning of the show, "there are many copies". Over on the blog, it is still unclear whether or not the two copies we saw were, in fact, pushed out the airlock. Even if they were,...

With the direction the show is headed towards, Dean's character will probably be developed farther, especially since there is no longer any need for subterfuge- at least among the known humanoid...

Living as close to Cokeburg as I do, it's easy to get caught up in the show and go there to meditate. I've taken both of my sons out to Iowa so that we could play baseball at the Field of Dreams...

We all have to "leap" home whenever our work here is done. That's why I believe the show's basic premise is a metaphor for life, death, and how they relate to one another.

SBF;
If it's too hard to run, fly! You can do it. You'll have to teach yourself to do it, but it begins with one simple thought:
"I know that this is a dream, and I can do anything!"

Don't dismiss your dreams. They happen for a reason. You may not understand why, but they do mean something. Here's a good example, from April 1, 2004:

You don't like the new BSG? It certainly is not the original series, and sometimes (like last week) I wish they weren't so graphic. The story is good enough to avoid "working blue".
